KCC Update – 3rd Oct 2010

Monthly Meeting This Week
Its our regular monthly meeting this Wednesday (6th Oct) so come along to the Fox Inn in Steventon around 8PM to find out what’s going on.

Wednesday Evening Paddling
Officially Wednesday evening paddling sessions are over for this year now the nights are closing in. Undoubtedly though there will be some hardy souls out and about though, but if you need access to the hut it’s probably best to check with myself or Louise if there is going to be anyone around.

There is of course Sunday morning paddling going on, but this is a bit more informal so again it’s best to check if anyone around first before getting out of bed early!

Pool Sessions
Pools sessions start soon! Dates between now and Christmas are:

  • 14 October 2010
  • 11 November 2010
  • 25 November 2010

Sessions run between 200 and 2130 full details can be found here: https://kingfishercanoeclub.co.uk/paddling/pool/

Special Edition of The Trasher
As you will probably know we are producing a special issue of The Trasher as memorial to Chris Wheeler. We have already circulated the current KCC list asking for any photos, memories or anecdotes that people would like to submit. It occurs to me however that for whatever reason, many people who knew Chris particularly from the early days are no longer on the email list. I am therefore sending this out to all those I think may like to contribute.

The issue will contain much of what Chris wrote for the Trasher. We are certainly not short of material, the problem is what to leave out, we could fill a book! However we would also like to include personal reminiscences, anecdotes, stories etc which reflect Chris` life. They can be serious or humorous (Chris as we know had a very dry sense of humour!). If you have any photos especially of the early years these would be good too. Contributions can be any length, even a couple of lines. Please do not feel obligated to contribute but the opportunity is there for those who wish.

We will try to include what we can and we may need to edit, but we do need it NOW. Myself and Guy have already had one session putting stuff together and have another planned in the next week. If you would like to send something in please do it now.  Chris, as we know did so much that it is not possible to include all his activities in one edition.

Please feel free to forward this onto anyone you think may like to contribute but please remember time is off the essence. Please send contributions to kcc.trasher@gmail.com AND davidsurman@hotmail.com
